  I am busy getting ready for a graduation party so I have not been doing much crafting. But I decided to make an up date video while I was cleaning the coop. Roxanne is most definitely a Rocky so we will have to see how that goes. Thanks for stopping by. Brenda

Party Prize update and Mothers Day Card

 Hello Everyone. I made this mothers day card using the stamp of the month set called Tea-rrific. I used the CTMH die Happy for the front. I also used a die cut Prisma for the table cloth  in the center of the card for the cup to sit on. To make my Tea cup stand up on the inside I used a die from Elizabeth Crafts called Fence Pop Stand.The paper is from CTMH but I an not sure which one. I order the 6 x 6 sample sets to show my girls the new paper and I used some paper from one of those. The size is perfect when you want to make a quick card and then you do not have to get out an entire paper pack. Every person who orders from my Birthday bash party will get an entire 6xx6 package of the new papers this time. I was not able to make any cute party favors for those who ordered so this is ONE of the things they will get! I am so excited to share the new papers with all of you.

  Here is a picture of one. I am also having a drawing from my blog but since I have not been able to do a lot of blog post due to working so much it will be short. This one is going to be kind of a secret. If you do not follow my blog then you may not find out about it. To get a ticket in the drawing you need to answer the question in the comments below. What is the name of my favorite chicken? Hint she is a Blue Cochin. If you subscribe to my YouTube channel you will also get a ticket for the drawing. the prize is the stamp set below. Good luck and I can not wait to see you Saturday!

Birthday Layout

  For this layout I used some newer paper from Close To My Heart called Some kind Of Wonderful. Then I used some really old Close To My Heart stuff. I used Heartfelt Whimsy which is some felt shapes and frames. These pictures are older and I was stuck on how to scrap them. I am glad to finally have them done. Thanks for stapping by and Scrap Happy!

Chick update!

Well I got my chickens out of my scrapbook room so now I can start working on crop projects,finally! I think we might have an pops. I am a little worried my Silver Laced Wayndote might be a rooster. A Rockie and not a Roxanne! She sure has a pink comb and waddle. I can not wait for our scrap party!

Our Movie Star Chickens!

 So Our baby chicks are a little over a week old and I can not believe how fast they are growing. Krista helped me name them( and Anna) and she picked all fancy movie star names.They are already getting their wing feathers in and the Cochin are getting their feathers on their feet.it is not an easy task taking pictures of busy baby chicks! Thanks you goes to my assistant, Krista. Tia's have been delivered to her house.(Also thanks to my assistant Krista) and sadly we lost one bay chick.

She is a Blue Cochin, but she will not actually be black. I can not wait to see how her colors turn out!

Snow Coming Random Stamping

 This layout is from Krista's Freshman year of high school. I used random stamping to make the background paper . The stamps I used are: Give A Gift, and Balloon Ride. I used my Art Booking cartridge to cut out the die cuts before I stamped the images. The lace was a scrap from my stash. I love how the lace adds an elegant touch to the layout. The gems I got at Michael's on clearance. Thanks for stopping by and Scrap Happy!

Refinished Country Desk!

    I bought this desk and repainted it last summer while I was off of work. I just sat in a chair in the garage to work on it so I did not stress my knee. I used some Chalk paint just like I did on the dresser for my scrap book room and the distressed it with glaze. The details in the wood look really nice with the glaze. I really love how it turned out. The pictures do not do it justice but they were taken down stairs. After I finished it , it sat down stairs for a good six months before it finally got brought upstairs and put to use.
 This is what it looked like before I painted it.
 I sprayed the desk with a primer first and then painted it with the chalk paint.
And here it is finished with some close up pictures of the details. Okay below is just a few more pictures of the desk in progress. Thanks for stopping by and Scrap Happy!

Operation Use Up Paper Challenge!

 This was a fun challenge to myself. I got this Sizzix paper pack way back when I first started scrap booking at a Son-Life Crop and decided it was time to use it up. Some of the cards I just decorated the base and I am  planning on adding sentiments later.  Most of the paper was used and that was my goal. I really liked the paper, so I did not want to just trash it, and cards seemed like a good option. I used a bunch of Sizzix dies and some Close To My Heart stamps to decorate. The best part is that everything I used was older stuff. Thanks for stopping by and scrap happy!

Egg Fight!

   Well I was so happy to be able to hang out with some of my scrapbook friends at Kathy's crop!!!!! I work so much so that is a rare treat!!!! This is not one of the layouts I did at the crop but with Easter coming up I thought it was a good fit. The paper is all older from my stash. I used some Sizzix dies for the title and words. The middle section was made using a Martha Stewart punch. Thanks for stopping by and scrap happy!

This entire card was made around the negative space left over from a heart die cut. I had some felt hearts I picked up somewhere on clearance and quickly stamped a sentiment on it. Super easy and fast!

Love You Guys!

   I love these pictures of Krista and Chewwy from last summer. She sent them to me in a Snap Chat and I quick screen shot them. I used Fundamentals-Enchantment paper from CTMH for this layout. I also used Complements-School 7-12 pack but instead of using the "first day" banner for the first day of school, I used it for the first day of summer. I also used the new Basic Hearts Thin Cuts and the stamp Journaling Heart that matches it. Don't forget Kathy's party is open. http://brendamckerchie.ctmh.com don't forget to join.

Owl You Need Is Love

     I used the Lolly Doodle paper from Close To My Heart for this layout. I also used the My Stickease to match. Then I made an 8 x 8 page for my son's book and I just took my markers and doodles lines to match the stickers for his. I also added some Wink Of Stella to the stickers to make them shimmer but you can not see that in the picture. Thanks for stopping by. Also check out whats new from Close To My Heart and join Kathy's Party. http://brendamckerchie.ctmh.com

Senior Night Poster

     Well I had a foot doctor appointment today and after a shot in the foot (boo) I got a day off from work. I am supposed to stay off my feet so this is a good time to craft and work on my blog. This poster was for Krista's Senior night for the swim team. I got the large patterned  poster board from Hobby Lobby. I used my Cricut to cut out the banners and swim boarder.Then I cut out the banner with my CTMH cartridge and used some letter stickers. My plan is to use the same banner for her polo night also and just make a new poster. Then we will hand them up at her graduation party. The K had fallen off before I tool the picture, but I have gone thru and glued all the letters on so that does not happen next time. thanks for stopping by and Scrap Happy!

Halloween Layout

   For this layout I used two different papers. Spellbound and Enchanted, The Enchanted was a level 2 so I used the stickease that came with it.. I also used some CTMH Chipboard pieces, and some Felt Shapes-Midnight. I fells like October right now and not January. Rainy and no snow. I am not complaining. I hate the cold. Well off to work but thanks for stopping by and Scrap Happy.

Let The Fun Begin!

  I got some Picture My Life Later Sk8r cards on clearance and I wanted to try to use them on a scrap book page. I also used paper from Urban and Later Sk8r for this layout and the 8 x8 layout. I used the stamp from the Later-Sk8r workshop, and the embellishment to match. I also used Epoxy Bubbles. It was so cute when Andrew took the boys outside to show them how to skateboard.
    So what have I been doing? WORKING!!! But I am going to start getting some free time to do some crafting.  Right now I am trying to clean out my scrap room so I will have some stuff to share at Kathy's up coming party. Krista should be starting polo soon. It will be her last year, however they have yet to find a coach. Also I am really excited to be getting some baby chicks in the mail in April. That should be a fun adventure. I hope you are all doing well and Scrap Happy Brenda.
